Yikes! Not liking those giant vertical sink marks along the sides - easy enough to fill I suppose but shouldn't be in a brand-new kit! QC anyone?

yes, Jim. I am impressed so far but those sink marks........how do you fix it though? It doesn't bother me too much, just curious.

Thanks

I relooked at mine last night. I have them too, but they are not as pronounced as yours. I think mine is going to disappear under primer and paint.

Step 1.

I can use some help here, knowing almost nothing about Maxxpro, can any of you who knows this vehicle help me check the parts position before I glue it? the instruction is not very clear. Thank you!

K sprue seems to be same as the MATV without the water and fuel cans and the tool box parts. Concerning the Rhino is it placed in the MAXXPRO same way as on the MATV?

Hi, I don't have the MATV, still waiting for Kinetic's new version.

looks like there are a few ways to install the rhino on the maxxpro.

Hi Jay,

can you post more sprue shots? I expect my kit in two weeks and want to see if it could be converted in the USAF TACP version?

TIA
Hans-Hermann

P.S. Scans of the instruction will also be helpful.

Wow, Rob did a lot of hard works on his maxxpro albums, I feel like i totally 5 finger discount it for the money I paid, thanks Rob!!!

With rob's close detail shot, it convinced me positioning Part C34 at the right angel.

I'm also selling walkarounds of the Maxx Pro almost daily now. Includes interior shots, detailed uncercarriage with brake lines, and also the Plus and Dash variants, as well as details or armor blocks and their mounts, and some destroyed Maxx Pro photos. A must have if I do say so myself. Arrives same day. PM me if interested.

Thanks for the kind words. Similar Buffalo walkaround is available, updated last two weeks ago with even more shots of new A/C unit and other details. If you've purchased the set before then, email me for free updates.

I glued the front parts first then cut out the body floor part, just make sure the undercarriage sits flat on the body before I glued the rear part together, it just my way to do it cause I ran into trouble with my other vehicle builds.
